How to Draw a Bobcat
Start by sketching an irregular head shape that includes the ear outlines on top, which are pointed with a slight inward curve at the tips to mimic the tufted ears of a bobcat.
Sketch in the eyes, which should be almond-shaped, and the nose, which is small and rounded. Add the inner ear details as well.
Draw the facial markings of the bobcat, which include the whisker pads, the mouth, and additional fur details around the face.
Extend a line from the head to create the neck and back. Then, draw a wavy line for the tail with a tuft at the end, showing the short, “bobbed” appearance typical of a bobcat’s tail.
Draw the front leg extending from the bottom of the neck, including the paw details.
Add the second front leg, slightly behind the first, to give the appearance of depth.
Draw a curve line starting from the tail.
Sketch the hind legs with a wider top that narrows down to the paws, ensuring one leg is slightly hidden behind the other for a 3D effect.
Connect the lines of the legs to form the body, adding curves to represent the muscular build of the bobcat.
Color your bobcat with appropriate shades, typically varying tones of brown, tan, and white, with distinctive markings on the face, legs, and tail.
